Inzetstaal is a collective term for steel types with a carbon content of max 0.25%, which, through induction hardening (annealing), acquire a hard and wear-resistant surface after processing. Components that are subject to wear, such as gears, worm gears, racks and similar applications, are often made from these materials.
In order to achieve a more even hardening process, a special refinement of the base material can be chosen in some cases:
